The general idea behind this post is to point out a section of music that I seem to be hearing a lot recently. Songs that once I finish listening to I'm overcome with befuddlement. Feel free to post your one experiences below. If I get enough comments I might start a new blog to post other things like this.
Take this song, 'As Tyrants Fall,' by Heavy metal band, "Fleshgod Apocalypse." Typical heavy metal band right? Machine gun percussions, throat ripping deathcore vocals, insane tempo changes, and.. a minute long classical ending. That's right, if you click on the video below and skip to 2:56 you will have the softest cushiest classical beat to skip to the office to. :3
Jokes aside, the ending is very well synced to the general album's sense of stretching suspense. Not to mention the obvious skill needed to play instruments at that level. I just can't help but feel like I'm at the receiving end of a big metal rick roll.
